MY WAY REVIEWED
“My Way” is a documentary that feels like a feature film. You get some amazing interview segments with Steven Adler, Ricki Rockett and many other 5th grade favorites. The thing about the film is that I’m still not quite sure what it was trying to accomplish. The message of a girl ditching the corporate world for the rock stage is inspiring. But, it doesn’t feel grounded in anything.
I feel if we had more time with our subject, this could’ve been a far more impressive documentary. As it stands, the doc works as a kick ass girl power movie in an age where that seems to be dwindling by the hour. Check it out, if you have the time.

The Plot Thus Far
My Way begins with the conventional “small-town girl livin’ in a lonely (corporate) world.” Yet instead of taking the midnight train, Rebekah Starr trades her pants-suit for a Les Paul, grabs her sassy Estonian tambourine-banging sidekick and hits the highway-destination: Sunset Strip. When Rebekah’s marriage falls apart in real time, we realize her dream is not a whim. It is a burning passion for music that comes with its share of real world sacrifices. Thanks to the support from her newfound rock n roll legend friends such as Steven Adler (Guns n Roses) and Rikki Rocket (Poison), Starr re-commits to her mission and accomplishes what she set out to do. Her contagious optimism acts as the film’s through line, hoping to inspire anyone feeling trapped by their circumstances.
